Melissa Hie van de blog Girl Eat World reist al een paar jaar de wereld rond en maakt van alles wat ze eet een te gekke foto.
Tijdens haar eerste echte reis door Europa in 2013 was Hie voornamelijk alleen. Omdat ze zich bezwaard voelde om random mensen op straat te vragen foto’s te maken en ze niet zo dol is op selfies, besloot ze van alles wat ze at een foto te maken.
Het bijzondere aan de foto’s is dat je niet alleen het eten ziet, maar vooral ook de plek waar de foto is genomen. Zo zie je eetbare pandabeertjes in Japan, maar ook dadelkoekjes in de woestijn van Jordanië.
? a Panda-bun filled with red bean in Kobe, Japan by @op.118! She got it from Kobe's chinatown area, called Nankinmachi – named after Nanjing which used to be the capital of China. "Machi" means town in Japanese! Nankinmachi was developed by Chinese merchants after Kobe Port was opened to foreign trading in 1868 and became a vibrant area bustling with trades and restaurant by early 1920s. And! It's time to announce my next trips – I am off to Lombok to hike Mount Rinjani ⛰?? this weekend, then I will be traveling to Jordan ?? with @visitjordan for 8 days next weekend. I am sooooo looking forward to it! ? #toocutetoeat
???? The cuuuutest handmade cat donut from Floresta Nature Donuts @floresta_nature_doughnuts at Shin Kyogoku 新京極 Market in Kyoto. These are called Doubutsu Donut どうぶつドーナツ or "Animal Donut". I have wanted one since I saw them on instagram awhile back! These animal donuts became a sensation about 4 years ago, created by Floresta in Nara. Due to the massive success of the animal donuts, they now have branches all over Kansai region (Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, etc)! There are many different animal designs, but this cat donut is one of their original designs. The donuts are all cake-based and the ears are made of almonds. So adorable! Special thanks to my friend @soulstruck for the tips ❤️! @op.118 and I practically ran to find these donuts when you told us there is one near Nishiki Market! #ShotOniPhone6s #ShotOniPhone6sPlus #toocutetoeat #floresta #どうぶつドーナツ #donutscookiesandcream #eeeeeats #buzzfeedfood
???? A Sakura-flavored ice cream in front of Sakura trees at Arashiyama Park in Kyoto! I spy @op.118 ? hanging about in the background. Visiting Japan during Hanami season is a must-do! Everytime the wind blew into this park, sakura petals would fall all around us like pink snow. The sakura trees in Japan have probably thinned out by now, but I will cherish this moment forever ?? #ShotOniPhone6sPlus #icecream #icecreamking #eeeeeats
I'm going to Jordan ?? with @visitjordan in two days! Here is a #GirlEatWorld by @sceatheworld at the desert of Wadi Rum when she went a few months ago. This is Ma'amoul, aka Dates cookies that are very popular in Levantine countries such as Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon and Syria. The thousands of palm trees around the desert of Jordan results in great varieties of dates, from blonde to dark to the almighty Majdool date, the king of all dates. I can't wait to explore Amman, Jerash, the Dead Sea, Dana, and of course, the majestic Petra!! I have also been dilligently watching @migrationology's Jordan foodlogs on youtube too to prepare myself for all the delicious Jordanian cuisine ☺️
A little clementine ? at Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon ?? I know it's crazy, but it is now the last five days of 2015 (!!) I will be posting once a day until December 31st, five of my favorite #GirlEatWorld stories from 2015… Starting with this one from the Myanmar trip I took in January with @sceetheworld. Why clementine? ? I was pretty much obsessed with this fruit throughout the trip. They are easy to peel, so sweet and seedless, goes for $1 for half a dozen and there seem to be no shortage of them in each burmese city we visited. It became my go-to snack! Shwedagon Pagoda is believed to be constructed 2,600 years ago and contains relics of four Buddhas. In the modern day, it has become an important political arena for the burmese people. In 1946, it is where General Aung San demanded independence from the British before he was assasinated a year later. In the same place 42 years later, his daughter Aung San Suu Kyi would address half a million crowd to demand democracy from the military regime. The most important thing to remember when visiting this place? Take your shoes AND socks off. You have to go barefoot! ;) ?
Can you spot @singasongjess in yellow in the pic above? We spent the weekend on a tiny paradise island called Gili Trawangan in Lombok, ?? Indonesia. This island is so small that it took us only about an hour to cycle around the circumference!! This grilled corn is sold everywhere around the island by small street vendors or small traditional stalls called "warung". I recommend to get it spicy, which just means it will be slathered by butter and sweet chili sauce for an extra kick. Delicious! My watch is by @danielwellingtonwatches. Use discount code "dwGirleatsworld" on their website for 15% off before 15 September!
??? Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I'm super excited to let you know Fat Tire Paris (@FatTireParis) is giving away a FREE TRIP TO PARIS FOR TWO. This includes flights, accommodation and custom itinerary with Fat Tire tours in the magical city of love! Contest ends on 30 September. ???Click the link in my bio for info! How do I know about Fat Tire tours? ? When I went on my europe trip two years ago, looong before #GirlEatWorld was born, I booked a day tour with Fat Tire tours to see the city of Berlin on a bike. I ended up enjoying the day so much that I came back the next day and did another half day tour with them. The best way to really experience a city is on a bike! Since then, I have been recommending this tour to my friends who visit Europe. I hope one of you gets the chance to experience the tour too ? #FatTireParisGiveAway #FatTireParis #sp
